"We enable a faster and more personalised monitoring of patients with heart failure, which leads to improved patient care."

"I feel I can make a difference in people’s lives while doing what I enjoy the most: playing with some of the latest technology and gadgets."

Dr Jenny Tran is a medical doctor completing research on chronic comorbid conditions and cardiovascular risk as a Rhode Scholar. 

"A major challenge is finding the best way to make sure all those who can benefit from being less at risk of common diseases have access to the knowledge we already have about this."

"Heart failure is a very common condition and affects over 550,000 patients in the UK. It also has a very poor prognosis, as 20 to 40% of patients die within one year of diagnosis. Hence it represents a major challenge to health services."

"I feel I am contributing to improving long-term healthcare of people living in low-to-middle class countries and making it accessible and affordable."

"My expertise is essentially to use technology to produce a positive impact in society."
